One of the UK’s best-loved car makers, SEAT, has announced an impressive start to the new year.

According to the manufacturer’s latest sales figures, the company secured double-digit annual growth in the first two months of 2019.

A winning start to the year for SEAT

Overall, SEAT recorded combined sales of 88,900 cars in January and February this year. It marks the highest two-month start to year sales volume for the company to date and beats the previous record high of 2000.

Indeed, it was an impressive month in February, which saw an 11.4 per cent annual increase to 39,900 vehicles sold. Sales were shown to be especially strong in the UK, Italy and Germany.

Responding to the record performance, SEAT vice-president for sales and marketing and CUPRA CEO Wayne Griffiths stated: “We’re going to display the company’s future at the Geneva Motor Show through concept cars such as the SEAT el-Born and the CUPRA Formentor, which will be included in our model lineup.

“We’re still working on the future with the satisfaction of achieving excellent results in the present and breaking records month after month.”

As mentioned, the marque will be showcasing its latest vehicle line-up at this week’s Geneva Motor Show (March 7 to 17). It promises to be an exciting event for all in attendance and both the SEAT and CUPRA brands will be out in force to impress.

Ellie Baker, brand manager at Fuel Card Services, comments: “SEAT is a fantastic brand that UK buyers continue to love. It’s therefore great to see the company going from strength to strength at the start of 2019.”
